    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]The grey one was given to me as a gift, she was extremely small when I got her, and it was amazing seeing her grow up. She is still growing up! I think she an easter egger, I am not really sure. The red one, I was told it was a production red. Her I bought her three weeks ago, from the same place were I was given the grey one. When I went there I saw her and I knew I had to have her. She was in a cage with two good looking hen and three rooster, she was the weakest and had a big cut on her back, from all those rooster that mated with her. The guy was cutting her feet feather when I told him I would buy her. I brought her home, she full of lice, I decide to take her a shower with a bit of dog soap, and it actually work, she lice free. By the way, she had lived in a cage all her life. When I brought her home my little grey hen was not happy, she try to peck her but in the end the red one became the leader. I have never seen such a happy hen, though it took a few day for her to get use to my dogs. Ever since the day I bought I haven't cage her, she sleep on top of my bird cage every night and stays in my garden until I take out my grey hen, because I do keep my grey hen in a cage at night since she does not like to be out. Now I wake up every morning to feed my hens, hopefully I will be able to rescue another one.
